I think most people already knew that going in- but it was a well thought out premise that deserves an airing now and then. Once upon a time that was Scifi's main thing, reair cancelled shows so we could remember the good and the camp and reminisce about the old discussions on how it should have ended. Actually the channels heyday, before they started cancelling shows before their time themselves.
I think this is the perfect year to reair the series - had I known it took place in 2007, I might have been looking for it myself.
This is all fine. When SciFi first aired they had years and years of all types of science fiction to draw from and it was a fresh perspective to have a strictly science fiction channel, I personally was thrilled. Over time they have beat the oldies but goldies to death, like The Twilight Zone, The Hulk, etc. I cannot complain about high quality shows like Odessy 5 being shown with a run of 20 episodes. The killer is all of the other low quality garbage that is being thrown out to its viewing public, you know the ones that actually watch the commercials and support the network because we are science fiction fans that really want this network to succeed. How can they improve when they throw out good shows like The Dresden Files, Jake 2.0, and Dead Like Me, while they keep what I consider to be garbage like the old "SciFi" classic ECW or forbid that very "realistic" Ghost Hunters, or that oh so painful Pain Killer Jane. If they keep improving the quality of the shows, they will keep the loyal viewers like myself, but if the garbage keeps up, I know they will loose at least one, and that is me. I for one wish they had some competition in this broadcast market and it was actually able to get good quality programming in a consistent fashion, like Odessey 5, Eureka, and The Dresden Files.
